Vintage Vogue Brayered Specialty Paper

vintagevogue-tentbrad 

Today’s card features the new Vintage Vogue stamp set.  I absolutely love this card for a several reasons:

#1.  I’m using my favorite card format – the tent card.

#2.  I’m using one of my new favorite techniques – brayered specialty paper.

#3.  I’m using one of my favorite color combinations – Brocade Blue, So Saffron, Silver, and Whisper White

#4.  I love the colored brad insert for the Filigree Flower brad.

I hope you like it too!

Brayered Specialty Paper

Last night was Technique Tuesday Stamp Class!  Somethings that can be easily overlooked in the Stampin’ Up! catalog are the many kinds of designer papers.  There are lots to choose from to be sure!  Here is a picture of one example of the Bride Specialty Paper (there are two designs – one is this swirl; the other is a stripe):

Although very pretty, it may not jump out at you in the catalog.  At last night’s class, I showed my stampers a great WOW technique – Brayered Specialty Paper. It works best with the Bride paper (white) and the Bridesmaid paper (vanilla), but it doesn’t work with the Groom paper as it is BLACK.  Just by using your brayer/inkpad/soft cloth (to remove excess ink from the glossy parts), you can customize the specialty paper to whatever color you want!  That same paper now coordinates with my Rich Razzleberry cardstock!  I even brayered an extra piece for my punches!

This was definitely the favorite card last night!  I hope you like it too!
